Key Features

I read this for an Advanced Survey of African American Literature course and absolutely loved it. It takes you through the entire history of African American Literature, beginning with the vernacular, or works such as folktales, blues, ballads and sermons that were intended for oral communication, and continuing into the modern era with authors like Alice Walker and Nikki Giovanni. Each section begins with an introduction by the editor that provides context and background for the particular chapter of the anthology. Although it is an anthology and has many shorter works, it has several full texts within it and is a rich literary history of African Americans. I would highly recommend it.
